3 flying around downtown
An old buck?
Very common caterpillar here.
These tracks showed up beautifully in the melting snow of the fields in the university grounds.
These tracks were on the edge of a field in the morning. The thin layer of snow soon melted.
I saw this dove walking on the edge of a field in the morning. The snow was melting fast.
I saw this large white gull make tracks in the melting snow on the edge of a field in the morning. These gulls are common on the university grounds. When I identify the species I will edit what I saw.
Found the tracks on the melting snow edge of a field in the morning. A couple of hours later the snow was all gone. The running and skipping with frequent stops as described on p. 71 of Mark Elbroch's book 'Bird Tracks & Sign' was clearly evident.
A small group of about 6 deer were scared by a woman walking her dog. I happened to be walking towards them from the opposite direction. One of the deer splintered off from the main group. I measured one of the bounds to be 16.5 foot in length (see photos 1 and 2) in deep snow! After a few minutes she (he?) came around me to re-join the other deer (see the 3rd photo).
Burrows on the edge of a highway.
Found these tracks in the soft silt around the edge of a stream in a thicket. Can someone explain to me how to tell these tracks apart from a chipmunk (apart from the size difference)?
This owl was sleeping on a branch about 15 foot above a path. I even saw a runner pass right under the owl without noticing him.
A small snake curled up in the leaf litter in the woods.
Loud croaking alerted me to these frogs that were breeding in the swamp area near the entrance of the Arboretum.
Almost perfect tracks on the road leading to the Arboretum Centre.
Tracks along the road to the Arboretum Centre.
Beautiful tracks of a racoon on the surface of a pond.
My best guess from the placement of the feet, stride, and trail width is the Eastern Chipmunk. The tracks were right outside our screen door.
Not very clear tracks, but I saw the dove land and then take off under a tree near the university greenhouse.
Tracks found on the edge of a pond. Clear indications of exploratory holes.
Bed under trees near a path.
Tracks were on a path near the edge of a wood. The tracks seemed to head towards a garden with a bird feeder.
I saw the crow collecting dried grass pieces in the snow. I only noticed the (red?) squirrel tracks afterwards.
Racoon tracks going from right to left are then crossed by Canada Goose tracks going from top to bottom.
Striped Skunk tracks can clearly be seen crossing Canada Goose tracks on a golf course. The goose tracks go from left to right, while the racoon tracks go from from top to bottom.
Common weedy meadow plant on outskirt f forest. Zone 5. I don't know what it is.
